"In Anthropological Explorations in Gender, Leela Dube addresses a range of interrelated themes in a study of gender, kinship, and culture, by bringing together extensive fieldwork, personal narratives, a corpus of ethnography, and theory. Materials have been drawn from multiple and often unusual sources, including indigenous categories of thought and forms of speech, symbols and metaphors, quotidian rituals and practices, and people's voices gleaned through everyday encounters and experiences." "The incisive analysis offered by the author suggests newer ways of understanding caste, kinship, culture, and gender. The essays collected here weave together gender and anthropological perspectives and thus constitute a constructive critique of established sociological concerns."--Jacket

Kinship and gender in South and Southeast Asia : patterns and contrasts by Leela Dube( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a realization that gender relations are constructed differently in different cultures. But we need to understand the nature of cultural diversity and its relationship with women's situation. A key area of cultural diversity is kinship, which subsumes marriage and family organization. Kinship systems are an important context within which gender relations are located. Gender studies often leave out a direct consideration of kinship, perhaps because it is often thought irrelevant or in some ways an immutable, unchangeable given. It may also seem to be couched in arcane and difficult language. In point of fact it is very close to our lives and very relevant for understanding women's situation."
